I am 2/3 finished The Great Hunt. I thought it would be fun to chronicle my experience of reading WOT. I have been converted to full-on Robert Jordan fandom and I consider him to be a great novelist. I am excited to see the archives made available to the public and to see the series completed. I think a wave of serious RJ scholarship is going to appear in the future.
I thought it would also be fun to chronicle the publication of my first fantasy novel (hopefully the first in a 10 volume cycle) which will be available this spring. It's called "Carrot Field" and is a cross between The Wind In The Willows, Lord of the Rings, 1984 & His Dark Materials.
I have also come into peripheral contact with the world of WOT. I won't say anything now, but I might have some cool (extremely peripheral) WOT-related news concerning my novel.
